I want to thank all of you who came to the first OCLC Developer's Network Hackathon at NYPL's Science, Industry and Business Library. We had good discussions about SRU, OCLC services like xID, Identities, and WorldCat Search API, and how all these services can play in Drupal, VuFind and other open source systems.
See this video
of the Hackathon. Also, some attenders put some pictures and info on the web including Eric Lease Morgan's summary
, and our own site
And.. I want to thank Ann and Josh from NYPL for hosting - great facilities and you can't beat the location in NYC.
Bruce Washburn and I had a nice long walkabout Saturday night up to Central Park and back down Park Avenue. Bruce took some pictures
of his NYC trip. And I took a trip with a group of Hackathon'rs to the Empire State building on a beautiful misty night. Josh gave Alice and I a tour of the 42nd St NYPL HSSL
- containing the main reading room, one of the great public spaces in the country.
So my summary of our two days together -- fun, great code fragments and sample apps, great food, and opportunities to connect with library developers across North America (and two from Europe).
We are planning the next Hackathon - maybe in Europe?
